Ever wonder why asparagus comes in several sizes, ranging from thinner than a drinking straw to fatter than your thumb?
Obviously, thick asparagus is more mature than the thin variety. But choosing thick or thin asparagus is a matter of taste and how you plan to cook it.
Thin asparagus is great for steaming, stir-fries, and turning into pesto. Thick asparagus, on the other hand, may need to be trimmed and either steamed or boiled in order to be tender, or tossed with butter or olive oil as a simple side. While many people prefer the smaller spears for their delicacy and tenderness, others may like thick asparagus for its more robust flavor and meaty texture.
Tip : Look for asparagus stems that are plump and straight. Avoid any bunches with dry, split, shriveled or wrinkled stems, or excessively woody ends.
